Starlight Racing, co-owners of likely juvenile champion Shanghai Bobby, has announced a new partnership opportunity for 2013: StarLadies Racing. As the name suggests, the partnership will be for female racing enthusiasts only and will consist of a small but diverse group of fillies.

This partnership is the brainchild of Barbara Lucarelli and Laurie Wolf, two of the founding partners in Starlight Racing. Barbara and Laurie thought it would be fun to have a small partnership comprised of a few fillies and a few great women so that they could enjoy their passion for racing with other like-minded women.
StarLadies Racing will consist of 6-10 partners and approximately 6 fillies. This small group offers an intimate partnership and allows each woman the chance to be involved with the sport at, hopefully, a fairly high level, while minimizing individual risk. Barbara and Laurie will serve as managing partners and Donna Barton Brothers will facilitate communication between partners.
As with Starlight Racing’s core partnership, all horses will be selected from the three premier yearling sales (July Fasig-Tipton; August Saratoga Select; September Keeneland) and all of the StarLadies fillies will be purchased by the Starlight Racing team of Jack and Laurie Wolf, Donnie and Barbara Lucarelli and bloodstock agent, Frank Brothers. This new partnership will, in no way, affect Starlight Racing’s core partnership.
